First look with pictures at Tesla’s new mobile app with new UI, touch ID, and widgets


Update: Tesla officially released the app on both iOS and Android.

Last month, we published an exclusive report on Tesla’s upcoming new mobile map: ‘Tesla is about to release its biggest app update yet: Touch ID login, widget integration, and more‘.

We revealed several new features to be released with the update, but unfortunately, we didn’t have any pictures of the new user interface – until now.

While the update is not available yet, Tesla apparently jumped the gun and updated its pictures on the Google Play store before releasing the actual update, which should be available any day now.

Update: Tesla has updated its Google Play store page to remove the pictures, but we uploaded them below.

Therefore, the pictures below are from the Android app, but the iOS and Android versions had the same UI and features before and our last report on the update was based on the iOS version.

As we previously reported, the UI overhaul includes refresh buttons, a more detailed render of the user’s vehicle, and the addition of direct hotkeys to the functions instead of having to toggle between different screens.

The overall look is a lot cleaner and darker than the previous version, which is over 4 years old at this point.

Here’s a gallery of the new UI:

The new look is only one of the improvements made to the new app. It also features touch identification login and widget integration, according to sources familiar with the update.

Last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the company was about two weeks away from releasing the app, which was previously associated with Tesla’s upcoming v8.1 software update.
